This course is also available as classroom course Create, Secure, and Publish APIs with IBM API Connect v2018 (WD514G).

This course teaches you how to create, publish, and secure APIs with IBM API Connect V2018. You build Node.js API applications with the LoopBack framework. You define API interfaces according to the OpenAPI specification. You assemble message processing policies and define client authorization schemes, such as OAuth 2.0, in the API definition. You publish APIs and make them available on a secure gateway and on the Developer Portal.
